Ecopt is always the best place to go when you want to go travel the world in just a day, but during Epcot’s International Food & Wine Festival that experience is amplified immensely. During the food and Wine festival, there are normally over 25 different marketplace booths representing different counties across the globe. Each marketplace booth has 2-3 unique dishes and 3 or more different beverages for that specific country.
Epcot provides complimentary passports making it more entertaining. It’s memento that can be stamped in each international marketplace that is visited. Also, making it the perfect scrapbook souvenir. Each marketplace has its own unique stamp design demonstrating the culture and uniqueness of the specific country. It’s a great way to remember the delicious dishes and beverages.
The Festival, which is held for 53 days, is held this year from September 25 to November 16, 2015. The festival hosts culinary events, cultured parties, live musical entertainment and endless sampling options. It’s the perfect way to embark on a culinary adventure.
This year making it Epcot’s Food & Wine Festival 20th anniversary, they are doing something spectacular. They are teaming up for the first-time with ABC’s Emmy-New “The Chew” to tape live on location at Epcot. “The Chew” will be filming five episodes featuring Mario Batali, Michael Symon, Carla Hall, Clinton Kelly and Daphne Oz. The scheduled filming dates are set for Oct. 7, 8 and 9. These episodes will air during the week of Oct. 12 -16 on “The Chew”. These chefs and festival programmers are whipping up a feast of surprises to celebrate the 20th annual festival in style. With many new wine tastings and culinary experiences built around the 20-year milestone, this will certainly be the event of the year bringing lovers of food and wine together. It won’t be something you want to miss.
